I am going to be painting my frame soon. Currently my frame is raw and has surface rust, no clear coat. Just wondering the best way to remove this and prep it for paint. I was thinking I'd use steel wool and WD40, but I feel that may effect the way the paint adheres to the frame.

WD40 should be fine, but I'd wash the frame off with paint thinner when you're done. Let that dry, then paint it.

Id leave the WD-40 out of it. get some sandpaper or used a rustpaint based primer. Adding wd is just not worth the chance of orange peel by missing some in prep and have it affecting the paint.

Yeah I was thinking a fine sandpaper.

Best way to remove bottom bracket bearings? I want to be 100% sure I don't damage the frame. The bearings don't matter.

I've got an animal jumpoff remix with a stuck, broken pinch bolt. The (hollow) bolt snapped in half after the friend I got it from over tightened the rear of the stem. both pinch bolts broke, but one before the other. To make up for the missing bolt, which he was able to remove, he overtightened the lower one, and, yeah. Anyway, i removed the back/unheaded half with a pair of pliers. However, I've tried removing the head of the bolt with an allen wrench, and the bolt spins, but doesn't move. How can I get it out?

Is changing a crankset from unsealed to sealed just a matter of swapping bearings?

Sorry cant really follow your description. If you have the threaded half out, cant you just put a 5mm allen key or something similar in from the under side and knock the head end out?

Not usually. The unsealed will have threaded hardware on the axle so you will need a different axle too and probably some spacers. Usually makes more sense to just buy better cranks with a sealed BB...

I dont know you tell us... laziness? Greasing them is good practice.

Not trying to stir anything up here I'm just curious - why don't Odyssey/Gsport hubs come with greased bearing seats?
